Privacy, Security, Encryption Fresh from winning the PWN2OWN contest yesterday, Charlie Miller has been interviewed by ZDNet. He talks about how Mac OS X is a very simple operating system to exploit due to the lack of any form of anti-exploit features. He also explains that the underlying operating system is much more important in creating a successful exploit than the bowser, why Chrome is so hard to hack, and many other things.

We're talking a bloody software bug here, that's not a life-or-death matter.

I guess you didn't notice that we are comparing the actions, not the results. Ethics doesn't go out the windows just because the results aren't life threatening.
Replace "death" with injury or whatever.

I know the internet has a tendency to bring out everyone's inner drama queen but this is just over the top.

Oh the irony.
